    Didn't realise you had yours punched moonface! What size is it?
    Just a puny 12g, but done with a biopsy punch still. It was the first time I heard the cartilage "crunch", haha. It was a fast and sudden distraction from any pain because it was so unexpected.

    10g first + 14g second lobes, right helix,
    left daith, right conch, paired nostrils,

    When I got my rook done it was done with a BCR and I ALWAYS had issues. Eventually, I got it switched a barbell so it's great now. So, I think barbells are better for rook piercings

    Is it just me being silly, or did you say you were getting your conch pierced but ended up getting your anti-tragus pierced?

    Looks great either way though happy healing!
    6/7mm lobes, 2mm second lobe (left), 1.2mm forward helix (right)

    Lol nope you are right I was going for rook and conch but decided I liked the look of rook and anti-tragus better I might get my conch done on the other ear though, I think it would look cute below my scaffold.

    @kitebunny - yep 3 cartilage piercings in one ear in one sitting was not my best plan but I think my tragus was less healed than I thought because I've got no pain or swelling with that one. Sleeping is fun though ;P
